Offensive Changes Made
In initial Hockey Drills

Wolverines Favored Ove

n

A full week of rather rugged
practice sessions have produced
some changes in Coach Vic Hey-
liger's offensive plans for the Wol-
verine hockey squad who open the
winter campaign this Saturday
against McMaster.
With only two weeks to get into
condition for the beginning of a
long and perilous 25 game sched-
ule, Vic has sent the Michigan ice-
men through lengthy scrimmage
every day since the drills began.
THE IMMEDIATE results of
those intra-squad skirmishes has
been the elevation of two veterans
of last season, Al Bassey and Joe
Marmo, to the second line to flank
the 19 year old newcomer Bob
Heathcott.
Heyliger had originally
planned to use these two wing-
imen on the third line with Len-
ny Brumm and three sopho-

mnores'on the second line of for-
wards, but the showing that
Bassey and Marno have made so
far has pushed two of the first
year men, Ron Roberts and Paul
* 'w down a notch to work
with Brumm.
Wally Grant, Neil Celley, and Gil
Burford are still in a class by
themselves and will make up the
Wolverines' most potent scoring
combination as the number one
line.
Defensively the Wolverine pilot
has been pleased with the improve-
:nent displayed by Bob Fleming
and a sophomore, Graham Cragg,
who will probably operate with
Ross Smith and Owen McArdle
around the nets.
Heyliger was pretty well satis-
fied with Sunday afternoon's
workout in which a couple of last
year's stars, Gordie McMillan. and
Wally Gacek took part.

With a squeaking 52-49 victory
over Michigan State tucked grate-
fully under their arm, the Wolver-
ine Cagers meet a skimpy Miami
University quintet in the first
home game of the season in Yost
Field House at 7:30 tonight.

Waoil Makes
'Lookh' Squad
Al Wahl, Michigan captain-
elect and star defensive tackle,
was picked on the first team of
the Look magazine All-Ameri-
can team, announced yesterday.
The Look selections, made by
a board headed by the dean of
American sportswriters, Grant-
land Rice, also included the
name of Dick (Killer) Kemp-
thorn, Wolverine fullback, on
the second squad. The first
team selections were dominated
by the Midwest, which placed
seven men.

the season, they whipped Findlay
47-39.
* * *
LATER IN THEIR second start
they came against Kent State,
another Ohio state school, and
fell under a 49-40 defeat.
The Red and White are great-
ly outmanned by the Wolverines,
but they field a good sophomore
forward in the person of Jim
Heckaman. Heckaman stands
six foot two and sports a total of
22 points in the two games play-
ed so far.
He is 10 points ahead of the next
man on the scoring ladder, Ed
Griesinger, who has 12 to his cre-
dit. The Redskin scoring seems
fairly well spread among the var-
ious members indicating the team-
work that Coach Brickels has been
working on.

r Redskins
McCoy fields a team that has
three men who match or top the
tallest man on Miami's squad in
height.
Morrill, VanderKuy, and Skala
have a total of six inches over the
men they play against.

JET PROPULSION?
Japanese Swimming Feats
Amaze American Tank Fans

By GEORGE FLINT
A lot of talk-most of it highly
sensational-has been precipitated
by the amazing feats of the swim-
mers from Japan at the A.A.U.
meet in California last summer.

Much of that talk has centered
around such peculiarities of, form
as the supposed four-beat kick
used by FuruhAshi, and the un-
orthodox stroke recovery and pull
employed by all the Japanese com-
petitors.
* * *
BUT TOO little of it has been
about the primary reason for the
success of these "human P-T
boats"-the fact that they are in
better condition than their Ameri-
can counterparts.
Actually, the form used by the
Japanese is not a revolutionary
improvement in swimming tech-
nique. As Furihashi himself has
told American experts, the Jap-
anese athletes use the style they
do because they've never been
taught otherwise.
The windmill-like arm recovery
is more tiring than the American
bent-arm type. The four-beat kick
is a throwback to the early days
of the Australian crawl. And the
Javanese method of pulling, from
the point of view of mechanical
principle, wastes motion.
THE WHOLE story of Japanese
supremacy, as demonstrated at
the California meet, is the unpar-
alleled shape the athletes are in.
They spend more time in the wat-
er every day than any of the
American college swimmers do (or
are able to), and they place a
great deal of importance on exer-
cises to build up their speed.
They live and breathe swim-
ning. That constant hard work
at the sport has paid off hand-
somely for them, and it has
shaken the complacency of the
American coaches, who have
heretofore had the good fortune
to dominate international com-
petition.
Most coaches think it's a good
thing that the Japanese came
along when they did. It gives the
American swimmers some time to
take stock of themselves and real-
ize that perhaps they aren't un-

squad has held his own thus far.
The Red and White have won one,
lost one in their first two starts.
* *
BUT FACING Michigan they
lack both speed and height. Frank
Peticca at centeristhe tallest man
on the Redskin squad and he is
only 6'3". He faces 6'5" Leo Van-
derKuy at the pivot post for the
Wolverines.
Coach Ernie McCoy will prob-
ably take this opportunity to
shift the Wolverines around.
His main problem against Mich-
igan State last Saturday was the
fact he wasn't getting the punch
from.the guard positions.
He may shift Jim Skala from
the forward post to guard teaming
with "Lefty" Morrill who was high
scorer in the victory over the
Spartans.
* * *
THIS WOULD leave the road
open to try Bob Olsen, 6'2" junior
from Grosse Pointe, Michigan, at
forward teamed with Mack Su-
prunowicz.
Besides these changes Michi-
gan's strategy might slip from
control ball to the fast break
because of the edge in speed
and height.
In Brickel's first year at Ox-
:ord, Ohio, he has drilled the Mi-
ami team in fundamentals, and
teamwork. In their first game of
